  • My son started kindergarden this year and every day he wakes up at 6am. His bus is here at 6:50am-7am. I put both my kids 5yrs and 2yrs to bed at 8pm and they are both up and awake by 6am. :)

  • Between 8:30 and 9 pm. We get up at 6:30 or 6:45 if I am snooze happy and my second alarm wakes me up.

  • My kindergartner goes to bed at 7:00pm. He wakes up between 7:30-8am usually. He really still needs 12 hours of sleep and then some.

  • I have found over the years, that when I make a bedtime, they fight it. When I leave it up to them, they usually go on their own, earlier than I would have made them. I guess it makes them feel like they have the power. Whatever works.

  • My two kindergarteners go to bed at 7:30 while my 3rd and 5th graders go to bed at 8. The two oldest get up at 7:30 and the two younger ones get up at 7:45.
